NTT Communications debuts global IP voice dialing service

NTT Communications (NYSE: NTT) is giving its multinational corporation (MNC) customers a new way to reach out and touch their colleagues with a new VoIP-based service that will allow internal dialing between their offices, including their home Japan market.

Beginning on Dec. 1, NTT customers will be able to simply dial their base office's extension and then the receiver's extension to make a call.

One of the attributes that NTT is touting with the new dialing service is reliability. Because the new dialing service will be offered via NTT Communication's Arcstar Global IP-VPN service, the service provider claims it will be able to eliminate connection failures that can often occur with traditional Internet-based VoIP services.

Available in all of the 159 countries where NTT currently offers Arcstar services, the service integrates voice and data, and includes necessary service operation and maintenance.

The new service, which Mitsuru Takayama, Senior Manager of NTT Com's Business Network Services Division, said builds on its "existing Japanese VoIP service" is part of a larger suite of VoIP services the service provider plans to launch in April 2011.

Other IP voice services NTT plans to launch in April, include: a unified voice, video, web conferencing and instant/unified messaging; low-cost external dialing and call receiving from worldwide bases, and cloud-based global call centers.
